State approves one-hour training course for dentists to administer COVID-19 vaccine

The Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation has taken emergency action to allow licensed dentists to volunteer to administer COVID-19 vaccines at mass vaccination sites after completing a one-hour course. The agency will still require completion of four hours of training in order to administer the vaccine in the dental office.

ISDS is providing an online CE course for the required one-hour “Just in Time” training program so dentists can volunteer at vaccination sites.
